Motherhood in Ireland, Creation and Context
|Title:||Motherhood in Ireland, Creation and Context||Authors:||Kennedy, Patricia||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/9080||Date:||2004||Abstract:||In this book I bring together creative and critical writing on motherhood in Ireland in an attempt to understand its complexity. I am conscious that motherhood has been used as a symbol in Ireland in political, cultural and social life. In the course of editing this book I met many men and women who told me that they did not feel qualified to write about motherhood, and some expressed a fear of speaking on the subject. This they all agreed was because they had not experienced physiological motherhood. I found this very disturbing, as it seemed to imply that a whole section of the population had been silenced.||Type of material:||Book||Publisher:||Mercier Press||Copyright (published version):||2004 the Author||Subject LCSH:||Motherhood--Social aspects--Ireland
